[Om-announce] Workshop on Logic and Practice of Programming
matcastellan at cs.stonybrook.edu
Tue Aug 25 21:45:41 CEST 2020
This is the call for position papers and participation for the 2020
Workshop on Logic and Practice of Programming
(https://2020.splashcon.org/home/lpop-2020), to be held in conjunction
with SPLASH 2020.
The goal of the workshop is to bring together the best people and best
languages, tools, and ideas to help improve logic languages for the
practice of programming and improve the practice of programming with
logic and declarative programming. We plan to organize the workshop
around a number of “challenge problems”, including in particular
expressing a set of system components and functionalities clearly and
precisely using a chosen description language.
We will have invited talks by four wonderful people: Adnan Darwiche
(UCLA), Leslie Lamport (Microsoft Research), Stuart Russell (UC
Berkeley), and Peter Stuckey (U of Melbourne). There will be additional
presentations and discussion panels on using well-known description
methods and tools. We will aim to group presentations of description
methods by the kind of problems that they address, and to allow ample
time to understand the strengths of the various approaches and how they
might be combined.
Potential participants are invited to submit a position paper (1 or 2
pages in PDF format), and also to state whether they wish to present a
talk at the workshop, explaining how they would express the challenge
problems. Because we intend to bring together researchers from many
parts of logic and declarative languages and practice of programming
communities, it is essential that all talks be accessible to
The program committee will invite attendees based on the position paper
submissions and will attempt to accommodate presentation requests, but
in ways that fit with the broader organizational goals outlined above.
Instructions for preparing a position paper appears below. Please submit
your position paper through this EasyChair submission URL:
*Preparing your position paper*: To streamline the exchange of ideas,
you may consider using a challenge software domain: the domain of
Role-Based Access Control. It was created for LPOP 2018, as described in
http://lpop.cs.stonybrook.edu/preparing-your-position-paper, but it was
only solved in part by various groups, as described in
https://arxiv.org/abs/2008.07901). We are also working to create RBAC
data for running experiments.
*Submission deadline*: Friday Sep 4, 2020
